On a newer 1996-up OBD2 vehicle, a loose or bad gas cap can cause the check engine light to come on. some cars yes everyone should have a shop manual for their vehicle, and the library should have a professional shop manual(wiring diagrams and more detailed info) available in the reference section for FREE....make copies of the right sections, and fix it like a PRO!! good luck Dave :)

What does warning light on a 2001 Ford Taurus that looks like half a car with a screw mean?

According to the Owners Manual (See "Related Questions" below), that indicates the gas tank cap needs to be checked - likely not tightened enough. Check fuel cap Momentarily illuminates when the ignition is turned to the ON position to ensure your bulb is working. When this light turns on, check the fuel filler cap.

When the fuel filler cap is properly re-installed, the light(s) will turn off after a period of normal driving. This period will vary depending on driving conditions. It may take a long period of time for the system to detect an improperly installed fuel filler cap. For more information, refer to Fuel filler cap in the Maintenance and care chapter.

VW Jetta Dashboard warning light car with bolt on side what does this mean?

According to my 2004 Jetta owner's manual, that's the fuel filler cap indicator: " A warning light in the instrument cluster will come on if the fuel filler cap is not properly closed. If the warning light comes on, you should turn off the engine and close the fuel filler cap properly. Once the cap is properly closed all the way, the warning light will go out when the ignition is turned on again and the check cycle is complete. The completion of the check cycle depends on how you drive. If the awarning light has been on for at least 5 minutes, it will go out only when the ignition is turned off and on again."
